Mentalidad: la nueva psicología del éxito

Mentalidad: la nueva psicología del éxito

La escuela de mis hijos recomendó que leyéramos Mentalidad: la nueva psicología del éxito. El libro tiene mucha información excelente que es aplicable tanto a los gerentes de empresas de alto crecimiento como a los padres. La conclusión clave para mí es que las personas altamente capaces tienden a evitar los riesgos porque tienen miedo al fracaso. Se acostumbran tanto a ser elogiados por sus logros que terminan sin esforzarse al máximo por miedo a parecer tontos. Como padre (o gerente), el libro recomienda elogiar el esfuerzo, no los logros, y crear un entorno que fomente la toma de riesgos y celebre el fracaso. Este es un concepto que realmente resuena conmigo, no solo como parte de mi estilo de crianza, sino también en la forma en que dirijo en Zillow Group. Nuestros valores fundamentales como empresa alientan a los empleados a dar grandes cambios, con el entendimiento de que no todos funcionarán. Así es como hemos logrado nuestro éxito actual y es lo que motiva a nuestros empleados.

Reasons to Stay Alive

Reasons to Stay Alive

Books have helped me with just about every decision I’ve ever made. One that sticks out to me was reading How to Stay Alive by Matt Haig. There’s a moment in the book where Matt talks about wanting to kill himself but not having the gusto to go through with it. And I’ve been there before, in pretty much the exact circumstances he describes. I thankfully got help and I’m all good now, but it felt reassuring to read that experience and almost share it with him and know that he and maybe other people get it. It’s hard to explain but sometimes when you feel suicidal having people worry makes you feel annoyed, but being able to almost joke about it, in the way Matt does, feels quite cathartic. Although I’m certainly not saying anything about suicide is funny!

If Only I'd Listen To Myself: Resolving The Conflicts That Sabotage Our Lives

If Only I’d Listen To Myself: Resolving The Conflicts That Sabotage Our Lives

I’ve gone through quite a few experiences brought on or shaped by what I’ve learned from books. [...] Another example is If Only I’d Listen To Myself: Resolving The Conflicts That Sabotage Our Lives. I read it in a moment in my life when my closest personal relationships were going through a crisis and I was trying to figure out what I really wanted from myself and others. This book forced me to step outside my own mind and see myself as a stranger, so I could better separate between what was real and my interpretations of it. It helped me cultivate my empathy towards others, but myself as well. Mind you, it’s not an easy read and it takes a lot of emotional labor to get the most out of it.

It hit me hard, the day my daughter commented that I didn't seem to miss my dad - because I never talked about him.

Worry: Hope and Help for a Common Condition

"Everyone worries. 20 million people in the US suffer from some sort of untreated clinical anxiety disorder.

Worry is ok. It helps me make deadlines, care about people, care about improving myself.

But “toxic worry” is when things spin out of control. When you wake up at 3am and can’t get that thought out of your head: why did they do that? How will I live? Does she/he love me? And on and on and on and on.

The book, “Worry” helped me."

You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life

I bought this book because I was curious about the title. I loved it and bought it for my entire team.

The universe matches the energy you put out. It’s so true. If you put out positivity, you get it back. It’s a great reminder that you are in charge of your destiny. Another point in this book that I love - if someone has a problem with you, it’s their issue. Not yours. We put some much weight on what people think about us, when it really shouldn’t matter.

Minimalismo digital: elegir una vida enfocada en un mundo ruidoso

Minimalismo digital: elegir una vida enfocada en un mundo ruidoso

The unassuming Georgetown computer science professor has become one of this generation’s leading voices on how we can all work more wisely and more deeply. With media consumption continuing to go way up (which, for most of us, means happiness and productivity continue to go way down) and the world becoming noisier every day, this book is an urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life. The minimalism movement successfully led millions to opt out of the many possessions we’re told we’re supposed to crave and focus instead on the small number of things that bring the most meaning and value to our lives. The same ideology applies to our online lives. Digital clutter is stressful. We don’t need the constant connectivity, the pages and pages of apps, the incessant scrolling and clicking. New technologies can improve our lives if we know how to best leverage them. This book already helped me break my Facebook addiction—and the first month of the year has been a big improvement for me because of that.

Cómo triunfan los niños: determinación, curiosidad y el poder oculto del carácter

Cómo triunfan los niños: determinación, curiosidad y el poder oculto del carácter

I was reading a book, “How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character” by Paul Tough on a recommendation by my sister, a Middle School teacher. At that time I considered myself a great mother with natural intuition and did not go to the book as a means of “self-help” but of leisurely pleasure. However, I was perplexed when I discovered that even the most intelligent, diligent, and natural parents fail their children on multiple levels. Intuition was not enough. The day I finished the book I went to my son’s baseball game ready to apply my knowledge but found that the words out of my mouth were not necessarily those recommended in the book. Then it hit me: what if everything in life weren’t necessarily “intuitive”? I had learned so much about parenting even if I thought I was doing an excellent job already. What more could I learn about being content, happy, or successful in life?

The Four Sacred Secrets: For Love and Prosperity, A Guide to Living in a Beautiful State

Our definition of success is in dire need of an overhaul. As The Four Sacred Secrets shows, there’s a disconnect between what our culture tells us we need to do to be successful and what would make us happy. Like The Four Agreements, The Four Sacred Secrets taps into ancient wisdom to offer modern truths for a well-lived life, including how to let go of what’s weighing us down and truly connect with others and ourselves.

How to be the Luckiest Person Alive!

How to be the Luckiest Person Alive!

I donʼt think a single book changed the way I see things or my career path. Iʼm trying hard to think now of something that impacted me in such a way… Maybe to some extent James Altucher did (James Altucher - How to be the Luckiest Person Alive!). Heʼs kind of a recognized author nowadays, but I remember following him on Twitter 7-8 years ago, when he was still up and coming, and his almost comical, seemingly self-destructive advice on just doing your thing and not paying attention to others made a lot of sense to me.

I was at that time in the midst of my first company, which looking back did alright, and all of us co-founders have done well, but as it was developing it was really the proverbial roller-coaster from the startup war stories. And much like with Richard Feynman whom I already mentioned above, Altucherʼs witty observations on living life and doing business were a great source of support.

Later, in 2011, the book came out based on his earlier blog posts and I remember pre-ordering it just out of gratitude for those earlier writings. And I have to admit, I havenʼt really been reading him since then.

Awakening Joy: 10 Steps That Will Put You on the Road to Real Happiness

Much more upbeat is Awakening Joy: 10 Steps That Will Put You on the Road to Real Happiness, by James Baraz and Shoshana Alexander. I don’t read a lot of self-help or inspirational books, but even if you never read anything in this genre, this book is one you should try. It’s about enjoying your life, consciously picking the things that make life more enjoyable and purposefully thinking about them. It shows how to think about spirituality and purpose in your life. Baraz teaches a very popular course and has an online lecture series on this. Melinda and I actually went to one of his seminars. He’s a very nice guy, and Awakening Joy is very good.

I suggest these [books] because they really open up 'how' you think about life and in turn work, success/challenges/setbacks, and in general, yourself. I believe that the more you can understand yourself and broaden your approach to work, the easier it will be to find work that energizes you. Finally, I'm a team player at heart, and love working with others to achieve a huge goal so a portion of these deal with team composition and performance too.

Vivir al estilo 80/20: trabaje menos, preocúpese menos, triunfe más, disfrute más

Other books that came along that were important to me, one of the really important ones was “Living the 80/20 Way”, by Richard Koch that became a really important foundation principle long before guys like Tim Ferriss started to make it mainstream as well, so that book had a huge impact, I wrote an article on my blog about it in the first year of my blog and it’s something that’s been part of my life in all my businesses since then so that’s a huge one.

La Guerra del Arte: Rompe los Bloques y Gana Tus Batallas Creativas Internas

Also hard to find on audio. I find Steve's voice to be fascinating, and even before I knew him, I was fascinated by listening to him speak his own work. The War of Art is one of those books, at least for me when I finally was exposed to it, I said, 'Why wasn't I informed? Why did it take this long for this book to land on my desk?'... You need to be clear with yourself about what you are afraid of, why you are afraid, and whether you care enough to dance with that fear because it will never go away.

Mini Habits: Smaller Habits, Bigger Results

Mini Habits: Smaller Habits, Bigger Results

I would say it was Stephen Guise's book "Mini Habits: Smaller Habits, Bigger Results." The title sounds like one of those formulaic self-help books, of which there are hundreds. But this one's different. Guise has derived a somewhat counter-intuitive approach to building habits and tackling hard projects. He suggests that we fail in bringing about personal change because we set the bar too high. He proposes an alternate approach that at first sounds a little weird — build 'mini-habits', (ludicrously) microscopic versions of the habits or projects you want to adopt. He dwells deep into the psychological advantage of this technique, revealing why we fail and why the idea of 'mini-habits' practically guarantees success.

I'm usually averse to self-help books that espouse trite productivity formulas; I avoid them like the plague. But this one came highly recommended, and to my surprise, the technique worked!

Very Good Lives: los beneficios marginales del fracaso y la importancia de la imaginación

Harry Potter nerds and business buffs alike will devour J.K. Rowling's Very Good Lives. The story draws from a commencement speech Rowling gave at Harvard University, and inspiration from her own life and failures. Entrepreneurs will love how she explains the benefits of failure and the crucial importance of imagination.

This is the book for those who are facing the grim realities of being broke and failing, and those graduating from college. Her main point is the importance of perseverance. Even someone who is on welfare and feeling hopeless could still turn that great idea into a business that launches the next Harry Potter franchise.

The 48 Laws of Power

No hay escritor vivo (o persona) que haya sido más influyente para mí que Robert Greene. Lo conocí cuando tenía 19 años y me ha formado como persona, como escritor, como pensador. DEBES leer sus libros. Su trabajo sobre el poder y la estrategia es fundamental para cualquiera que intente lograr algo. En la vida, el poder es la fuerza contra la que chocamos constantemente. Las personas tienen poder sobre nosotros, nosotros mismos buscamos el poder para que podamos ser lo suficientemente libres e influyentes para lograr nuestros objetivos, por lo que debemos entender de dónde proviene el poder, cómo funciona y cómo obtenerlo. Pero el poder puro no tiene sentido. Debe estar unido a la maestría y al propósito. Así que lee su libro Maestría para que puedas descifrar la tarea de tu vida y cómo dedicarte a ella.

Honorable mentions: Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, and The Joy of Sex, all given to me by my mother. I believe they helped inculcate some of the 1960s-70s ethos of individual freedom into my thinking.

The Influential Mind: What the Brain Reveals About Our Power to Change Others

The Influential Mind: What the Brain Reveals About Our Power to Change Others

I’m reading 3 books now and it really depends on my mood.

  • (1) Homo Deus by Yuval Harari
  • (2) The Influential Mind by Tali Sharot (re-reading it) and
  • (3) Hooked by Nir Eyal.

What do I expect to gain? With the 2nd and 3rd books, it’s to reinforce stuff I already know and both also point out useful tips for my business. The first is just a fascinating read about human nature and it’s purely for pleasure.

StrengthsFinder 2.0

If you want my favourite practical business book, go and buy yourself a copy of the Gallup StrengthsFinder. You'll get an access code to the survey in the back of the book. Years ago, my Chairman gifted the book to the entire team as a Christmas present. I loved it because it's grounded in the theory of playing from your strengths.

Los 5 lenguajes del amor: el secreto del amor duradero

Los 5 lenguajes del amor: el secreto del amor duradero

The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman impacted how I interpret and receive love. Not just romantically, but in my friendships and business relationships. I had several personal and professional relationships that improved when I could appreciate that their "love language" was different than mine. I could at least see their efforts as an attempt at showing me love and kindness, even if it wasn't how I best receive or give love. This is pivotal. And if you can separate out the idea of it being for romantic partners only, I'd say this is critical reading for leaders. Not everyone is motivated and feels appreciation by a raise. Sometimes, public recognition of kind words or an act of kindness will feel better than anything else you can do.

Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Life and Love from Dear Sugar

Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Life and Love from Dear Sugar

It was wonderful to read these two provocative books of essays by two incredibly wise and compassionate women. Cheryl Strayed, also the author of Wild, was the anonymous columnist behind the online column, Dear Sugar and boy, are we better off for it. This is not a random smattering of advice. This book contains some of the most cogent insights on life, pain, loss, love, success, youth that I have ever seen. I won’t belabor the point: read this book. Thank me later. [...] Both will make you think and both made me a better person this year.

How We Learn: The Surprising Truth About When, Where, and Why It Happens

He does a brilliant job proving that our thinking about learning is rooted more in superstition than in science. And boy this book is filled with science. It is extremely evident that the author is a science nerd because this book is 95% filled with studies and experiments on lots and lots of topics related to the learning: memorization, forgetting, associations, perceptions etc. This could make the book boring for a reader hungry for the bite-size advice (who has the time for any of this?) but I found the research fascinating and I went the extra mile in a lot of cases by going through the source material.

El niño autónomo: la ciencia y el sentido de darles a sus hijos más control sobre sus vidas

El niño autónomo: la ciencia y el sentido de darles a sus hijos más control sobre sus vidas

Hace algunos años, Bill Stixrud y Ned Johnson comenzaron a notar el mismo problema desde diferentes ángulos: incluso los niños de alto rendimiento acudían a ellos muy estresados y sin motivación. Muchos se quejaron de que no tenían control sobre sus vidas. Algunos tropezaron en la escuela secundaria o llegaron a la universidad y se deshicieron. Bill es un neuropsicólogo clínico que ayuda a los niños aquejados de ansiedad o que luchan por aprender. Ned es un entrenador motivacional que dirige un servicio de tutoría de élite. Juntos descubrieron que el mejor antídoto contra el estrés es darles a los niños una mayor sensación de control sobre sus vidas. Pero esto no significa renunciar a su autoridad como padre. En este libro innovador, revelan cómo puede ayudar activamente a su hijo a esculpir un cerebro resistente y listo para asumir nuevos desafíos.

The Self-Driven Child ofrece una combinación de ciencia del cerebro de vanguardia, los últimos descubrimientos en terapia conductual y estudios de casos extraídos de los miles de niños y adolescentes que Bill y Ned han ayudado a lo largo de los años para enseñarle cómo poner a su hijo en el verdadero camino al éxito. Como padres, solo podemos llevar a nuestros hijos hasta cierto punto. En algún momento, tendrán que tomar el volante y trazar su propio camino. Pero hay mucho que puede hacer antes de eso para ayudarlos a enfrentar el camino por delante con resiliencia e imaginación.

Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity

Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity

I’m reading “Far From The Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity” By: Andrew Solomon and have nearly finished it. It is quite long at nearly 40 hours, and a little depressing at times, but very insightful. When children are born that do not share the same identities with their parents and are considered “different” by being deaf, autistic, transgender, or genius, parents often struggle to relate, connect, and support their child appropriately. On the other hand, perhaps diversity is what unites us. Hundreds of stories of parent-child relationships are presented over his 10 years extensively researching for this book and over 200 pages of citations support his work.

Arquetipos: ¿Quién eres?

Arquetipos: ¿Quién eres?

It’s amazing! She goes into the different archetypes that live in that deeper part of our mind, we can have one or a couple and there was one that I really resonated with the Artist/Creative archetype and it really brings light to who you are. Caroline goes through your life journey, your unique challenges and lessons, which were to overcome the fear of not being original and to not diminish or ignore my talent but instead develop my unique gift. Can I develop my talent and express myself, or will fear of failure or humiliation hold me back? That was a profound shift for me, I could really relate to that in sssoooo many ways. She goes into our shadow aspect of self, our behaviours and patterns... and this was fear of being unacknowledged for my artistic gifts or resentful if I chose not to develop my inner Artist/Creative.

Consciousness

Consciousness

I am glad to find a complete book dealing with all aspects of consciousness in CLEARLY written format, with graphs and tables to facilitate comprehension. The book covers everything I had seen before from Artificial Intelligence to Philosophy to Neurology to Evolutionary Biology.

Say one wants to get an idea of Dan Dennett's theory of consciousness (without having to get through Dennett's circuitous, unfocused and evasive prose) or Searle's Chinese room argument or Turing's test or Chalmer's position or Churchland's neurophilosophy or a presentation of research on the neural correlates of consciousness...Everything I could think about is there.

This book is an exceptional step-by-step guide any entrepreneur can learn from because Stacy does an awesome job covering the right lessons with the right detail. The end of each chapter includes "Sign Posts" to help you take action on critical points along your path. And Chapter Two, in my opinion, is where the rubber meets the road for any business owner--learning how to deal with self-doubt, negativity, self-sabotage, and then the lessons of how to define your priorities and giving yourself permission to fail.

No es un libro de negocios, pero *El Libro* es uno que puedo decir que brilla entre las otras estrellas. Es difícil elegir un libro que haya tenido el mayor impacto en mí, porque siempre tienen algún efecto. Pero había algo tan calmante, tan reconfortante en *The Book* que realmente me ayudó en un momento de muchas dudas. Sé que se supone que esto se enfoca en libros menos "espirituales", y no soy un tipo religioso, pero realmente disfruté las nociones presentadas por *The Book*. Watts, el autor, tiene un pensamiento realmente profundo, y su escritura lo guía a través del pensamiento oriental para los pensadores occidentales.

Lo ÚNICO: La verdad sorprendentemente simple detrás de los resultados extraordinarios

I would say is the book that had the biggest impact on me and showed my life path. The amazing thing about this coaching book, that I did not find in any other book so far, is that it does not try to give you a certain path that you need to follow, quite the opposite. This book gives you the “tools” in order to find by yourself what you are looking for. Each and every person can interpret the information in the own way and adapt it to their own needs at the time being. Whether you want to find your path (which was my case), want to grow your business, develop yourself in your personal life, professional life or both, this book gives you the necessary tools to do so.

The Box: How the Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger

You might think you don’t want to read a whole book about shipping containers. And Levinson is pretty self-aware about what an unusual topic he chose. But he makes a good case that the move to containerized shipping had an enormous impact on the global economy and changed the way the world does business. And he turns it into a very readable narrative. I won’t look at a cargo ship in quite the same way again.

Así que hoy, en lugar de construir una carrera, prefiero hacer movimientos laterales en la vida, trabajar con grandes personas y ser parte de proyectos ambiciosos que impactan al mundo. Hay algunos libros que me trajeron aquí: [...] Frederic Laloux "Reinventing Organisations".

Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis

Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis

I’m a big fan of everything Jared has written, and his latest is no exception. The book explores how societies react during moments of crisis. He uses a series of fascinating case studies to show how nations managed existential challenges like civil war, foreign threats, and general malaise. It sounds a bit depressing, but I finished the book even more optimistic about our ability to solve problems than I started.

The Defining Moment: FDR’s Hundred Days and the Triumph of Hope

The Oval office can be a lonely place, so reading about your forefather’s experience could only help. “The biographies have been useful, because I do think that there’s a tendency, understandable, to think that whatever’s going on right now is uniquely disastrous or amazing or difficult,” said President Obama in an interview.
